But William H. .Michael, chief clerk and historian of the department of state, says no, and for yearB he has tolled for his country beneath the same roof which shelters the sacred document; has had the nation's archives at his fingers' ends. "The independence of the United States was declared by resolution on the 2nd of ^ July, and tbe adoption of the form of declara- tion on the 4th of July was a secondary mat- ter," says Mr. Michael., "It is a little strange that more Importance was not attached to the 2d of July in connection with the Decla- ration of I...

\ V' V ( I ■ CONTROL OF THE TICK Most Desirable to Eradicate Dis- ease Breeding Pest. Convincing Proof Now Given That In- sect Is Responsible for Man's Infection Wi%) Rocky Moun- tain Spotted Fever. The Rocky mountain spotted fever is responsible for about a dozen deaths annually in Montana and, because the source of the Infection has been looked upon as a mystery, much alarm has been felt. At the Bame time there Is reason to fear that the disease may (spread. In a milder form it is known to occur in other states. The establishment of a connection between this disease and the common tick of the northwest placed a new importance upon the study of the tick, in the light of what is now known re- garding Its responsibility, it is appar- ent that the tick is the connecting link between man and the unknown ultimate source of the {disease/ and hence it is most desirable to eliminate the tick.

As a decorative adjunct to the in- terior the Japanese have always been credited with recognizing and availing themselves of the screen when plan- ning the furnishing of a house. And from the east to the west women have been taught also how useful the screen can be in a decorative scheme. By screen perhaps one insensibly means the usual fourfold arrangement, hut it is also meant to convey the finely carved and artistically deigned oak or similar wood erection which one find sometimes used instead of doors. But such a screen must be in the right place, and decorators have long since realized how fine an effect can be produced by the right kind of screen in the right place. And now architects are commencing to know its value, and in modern houses the screen is. to a certain ex- tent, replacing the old-...

If, however, he is a pugnacious sprite and approaches despite the change, turn and address him thus: "In the name of the Lord, what do you want?" Whereupon he will tell you his business upon earth, then depart and never, never trouble you again. If, on the other hand, It is a prowling ghost who crawls under the bouse, bumps against the floor, makes strange sounds, and whispers In the midnight hours, you have only to put In a new floor and he will do so no more.

■ CULTURE OF SOY BEAN Farmers Experiment to Cut Down Prohibitive Feed Bill. Hogs, Cattle and 8heep Relish Crop When Fed From Mow—Coet of Growing and Harvesting Slight- ly More Than Corn. (By W. MILTON KELLY.) No farm crop is attracting more attention than the soy bean. The high price of all grain and concen- trates has caused many farmers to experiment with new crops that will assist in cutting down the prohibitive feed bill. The soy bean is a nitrogen gather- ing crop and it possesses a strong and penetrating root system that carries for planting by stopping up all but three teeth so tbat the rows will be 28 Inches apart. With all hose drill we use the middle hose and the two next to the outside so that we can follow the wheel when driving back across the field. If the ground is reasonably well supplied with mois- ture, I prefer to plant the seed about one Inch deep. The crop may be cultivated with an ordinary one-horse cultivator although some people prefer to narrow their two-hor...

SUCCESS WITH SHEEP Number One Can Handle Profit- ably Depends on Farm. 8ome Feeder* Turn Lambs Into the Cleaned Cornflelde With Some Rape in Them—Large Flock Can Profitably Be Herded. , The number of sheep one could ;profltably handle on a three or four hundred acre farm depends wholly .upon the farm, the season and the man. Two car loads, say 260, would .not be too many to start with If one had seen the thing done a few times, but for the wholly inexperienced, a good car load would perhaps be safer for the first trial, says the Dakota Farmer. We have known experi- enced feeders to take a thousand lambs onto such a farm, well sown to rape, turnips, etc., and to bring them out of the fields so well fleshed that only a few weeks on full feed were required to send them to the block in fine condition. Some very successful feeders, after •the fields are well cleaned up, turn their lambs into corn fields with some rape in them, and by means of port- able fences confine them to five, ten o...
